I suppose the reason you can not buy it is the same reason its not on the Archive yet, there may be few examples left in the wild, and Google Books has tied up the official example from either the publisher or a official library. Just maybe contacting Popular Science publishers might help you with an exemption from the Google Books download preventer. I suppose it will depend on your cause being just, or I mean, the merits. (If it means that Google might get more business, certainly ask them, but read carefully if they ask you to sign something.

It will be on http://books.google.com/books?id=8yYDAAAAMBAJ&;printsec=frontcover#v=onepage&q=&f=false but as you say, its not downloadable.

If it was on the Archive, it WILL be downloadable.

Please enlighten me on what year volume 75 relates to,it may be that I have individual copies for that year, I am planning to upload my incomplete collection when my health lets me.

please enlighten me too about wiki source, maybe I should cross load there too

sorry, forget it, I dont go back that far.

And NZ it seems never really went for Popular Science (likely it was the name "science) Popular Mechanics was always the one.

Popular Science was imported for lots of years (but PM was first)and now PS is no longer imported by distributors.

In NZ we have a small text archive, http://www.nzetc.org/

it not very likely you will have luck there, but there is similar in Australia, etc UK, places like South America

Sorry for raising your hopes with my first reply, I was still asleep, I could looked up the year myself for V75

If my calculations are correct, it should cover the months of July to December 1909 for Popular Science Monthly.

I hope your health improves. I wish you the best of health! :)

Sorry, I did not mean I was no longer interested.

And, its 6 monthly volumes, I was thinking 12 months.

The earliest PSM coming into NZ except via private importation, was 1930.

But I traced PMM back to the Great War, maybe our troops came across it while overseas, and began asking for it here, after the war.

My earliest of PSM and PMM are 1932, the bulk being 1935 onwards

Since we had a shortage of USA dollars, NZ got most of its imports from the sterling areas, we exported all our meat and wool to the UK so had to buy there. (loyalty, but a mistake). So most of the old books and magazines we got from the old days, came from UK publishers.

Matt, I just recalled this information for you.

http://www.instructables.com/community/Oooo-look-what-I-came-across-today/?comments=all#CIDCHZQFYNTAGO7

I am a Pro member there as Lateral Thinker, I set up as forum for Aspies, and member Goodhard was the first to sign up. I followed him to that topic

Instructables is just perfect for people with Asperiger's.

And Popular Science and Popular Mechanics would be prefect reading for ALL members of Instructables.

I note that Wikisource actively goes looking for old books, I suggest you post your request for Vol 75 there, by date, and see what comes up. Please advise me results, by private messaging me from there.

Ps to post on the forums, you just need to sign up, but not go Pro.

Peter
